Summoner’s Chalk (Weight 0)
This ornate piece of chalk is infused with alchemical reagents and arcane energies of great aid in the construction of summoning circles; it can be used to enhance the casting of Summon Monster (Or other spells, subject to GM).
When you have some uninterrupted time, you may use the chalk to create a summoning circle. The next time you cast Summon Monster with the aid of the circle, first roll+INT for the quality of your summoning circle; you gain +1 to the roll if you spent a full hour carefully creating the circle, and +2 if you spent 12 hours. You gain +1 if you create the circle in a place of power. The spell is then altered depending on the results of your roll:
12+ Your summoning circle is the pinnacle of perfection; take +3 to cast your spell. If the spell is successful, your monster receives 3 additional choices from the list of options (1d6+3).
10-11 High quality; take +2 to cast the spell. If the spell is successful, you receive one extra choice from the list of options.
7-9 Serviceable; take +1 to cast the spell.
6- Your summoning circle is botched, and provides no aid. Your chalk is wasted.
Each piece of chalk is good for one circle, and each circle for one spell; for this reason, they are often created or found in small bundles of two or three.
